To me, it's a question of whether they would give east Asia two Olympic Games so closely together. Of course, with Athens having 2004 and London having 2012, there's a precedent for it. It probably will come down to Chicago and Tokyo. In a way, it would be cool for myself as a Milwaukee area resident to see the Olympics in Chicago, maybe I could score a few T&F tickets and take the train down there. Of course, my personal interest for seeing Chicago get the bid means nothing when it comes to selecting the host city. May the best city win.
